BostInno has named Mick Bain a "50 on Fire" finalist in the Professional Services category. The 50 on Fire awards highlight the most impactful group of individuals and companies in Boston tech and innovation covering a span of industries. Winners will be revealed at the 50 on Fire awards celebration on November 9 at the Revere Hotel in Boston.

Bain is currently co-chair of WilmerHale's Corporate Practice. He has more than two decades of experience advising entrepreneurs, and high-growth companies throughout their lifecycles and represents venture capital firms, growth equity firms and strategic investors in portfolio investments. Recognized as a trusted advisor, Bain has advised clients on numerous venture capital, growth equity and strategic financings, initial public offerings, follow-on and other offerings, PIPEs and mergers and acquisitions. His clients have spanned a vast array of technology and life sciences industries, including big data, clean technology, cybersecurity, digital advertising, digital media, e-commerce, FinTech, mobile and telecommunications, software, biotech and medical devices.

"I love that I get to work with so many people with amazing ideas," said Bain. "Most people—including entrepreneurs—get to work with only two or three companies during their careers. I've worked with hundreds. I've seen lots of impressive management teams work through adversity to build great companies, and I've seen lots of really good ideas fail because of bad decisions or poor execution. I like working with innovative companies because I can call upon these many points of reference to help my clients make good business decisions and increase their chances of success."
